Do-It-Yourself Rain Barrel

Using a rain barrel in your yard is a great way to help conserve water! In partnership with the Newport News Master Gardeners, The Mariners’ Museum and Park is serving as a pick-up location for registrants to obtain their supplies to create their own rain barrel. Upon pick up at the Museum’s Business Entrance, registrants will be provided all of the materials needed and a video link to a tutorial on how to build, install, and maintain a 55 gallon rain barrel.

Please note that you will need to take your rain barrel home in a vehicle large enough to accommodate a 55 gallon drum. To learn more or to register, call the Newport News VCE office at 757-591-4838 or visit
